side view after the install288 viewsThis is a side view after the install. Assuming my van started out on an even keel, I have about a 3.5 inch difference in between the front and rear body lines now. This was to be expected as the axle is a 3 1/8 diameter rather then a 2 5/8 diameter. The springs That were put in also have an overload which gives additional lift in the rear.

pilot fog lights148 viewsThe new lights are made by Pilot. Model #PL-611B. The dimensions are 4x3, perfect to fit the 4" openings in my kit. These are an upgrade in quality. They utilize H3 bulbs and are made of glass.
